[the killing moon]
With a little research I found out that this look is part of Arabella Ramsay's Lookbook for 2010. I really like her boots alot! They remind me of some Minnetonka booties I wanted last season but didn't get around to buying. And the really thick scarf reminds me of a snood, which automatically makes it cool :). The model, with her facial expression and rumpled hair, reminds me of a little kid, whose mom just smothered her in layers of clothes so she could go out into the snow to play. Hmm... but shorts? Not a good choice mom :) But seriously... I actually like the shorts with these other pieces because it keeps the look from becoming completely like the comparison above, and the outfit from looking totally overwhelmed.

This year at Fashion Week there were special eco shows (dubbed The Green Shows) that graced the New York runway. The Green Shows weren't all made up of the bohemian loungewear that comes to mind when one thinks eco clothing; there was great variety in the styles. This variation in the shows was obviously chosen to shake the stereotype of eco clothing by showing that it can be very modern and translated to styles across the board. The current ecological state with all of the (good and necessary) hoopla about global warming and destruction of the enviroment really show the glaring importance of sustainable fashion. I do hope and believe that these shows were a peek into the future.
(The designs above are some of my favorites from the Mr. Larkin (an ecological study) collection. Check them out here: http://mrlarkin.net/ )
